Mild Cerebral Atrophy
My aunt was diagnosed of Mild Cerebral atrophy, (8*9mm) sized hypo intense lesion noted in right frontal region of scalp. How to address?any remedies?
Nothing to worry: Cerebral atrophy is a universal aging process that everyone gets. Mild cerebral atrophy that your aunt has is probably nothing more than normal aging. As for the small lesion in the right frontal scalp region, I must advise that you have her primary care physician look at this. If the lesion was in the brain, then a nonspecific small lesions in the brain are also very common with aging. ...Read more
Atrophy usually refers to the skin-as you get older or if you have had alot of sun in the past-the dermis (that is the layer below the top layer which is called the epidermis) gets thinner and the skin looks more wrinked. Muscles and fat can also get thinner -this is another form of atrophy. Even the top layer gets thinner ...Read more

Depends: The answer to your question should come from the doctor who ordered the CT scan.

I am 40 and this year in jan diagnosed in mri with mild diffues cerebral atrophy. what to do i fear no treatment now i am taking steroids but no good?
Doubt the diagnosis: The diagnosis of mild cerebral atrophy is doubtful. This is often based on MRI findings and it tends to have no clinical significance. There is probably no need for steroid treatment. It would be a good idea to obtain a second opinion and formal consultation about this matter. ...Read more

Mild cerebral and cerebellar atrophy of uncertain nature in 24 yr old male doc said all looked normal/should be just fine and gave riboflavin?
At your age: Might consider that there was some relative hypoxia during gestation or at labor and delivery. Unlikely this is an early presentation of genetic alzheimer's, and unless there is significant alcohol abuse or malnutrition, thiamine deficiency would also be unlikely. Some families exhibit various spinocerebellar degenerations, and a partial genetic expression may explain the atrophy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 11 months nephew had seizures. His EEG test came out normal, CT scan result reports he has mild cerebral and cerebellar atrophy, how it happened?
About EEG, seizure: If there is atrophy (means smaller than normal) please see a pediatric neurologist. Eeg's can be normal in the context of seizures for many reasons. If they are abnormal, they are often helpful, but treating your nephew clinically is most important, and eeg's are a first step to diagnosis with prolonged studies or other types of eeg's as a next step. ...Read more

My mother's MRI reveals that she has diffuse cerebral atrophy with mild hydrocephalus.Is there any treatment and medication to cure it?
Further work up.: Cerebral atrophy occurs as part of the normal aging process and there is no treatment for this MRI finding. As part of aging, the ventricles may enlarge. However, hydrocephalus is not a normal radiographic finding. A consultation with a neurologist to determine if your mother has any symptoms of normal pressure hydrocephalus would be a reasonable next step. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was diagnosis at 31 with nonspecific generalized brain atrophy but at 25 diagnosis with MCI, mild aspergers. Cause for concern? been evaled w/ memory loss by psyc
Brain atrophy: Brain atrophy means shrinking of the brain caused by loss of neurons. It is a normal finding in aging although this does not lead to equivalent cognitive changes. It also accompanies many neurodegenerative diseases most of which do not have a reversible quality. Causes that can be treated include B12 deficiency, alcohol use, inflammatory and infectious processes. Your doctor should be telling you why you have this and identify measures that can help maintain function and minimize atrophy to the degree possible. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I have memory problems and just learned from a neurologist that I have mild brain atrophy. Is this serious? How should I follow up?
It depends.: In a young person that would be cause for concern. However, in elderly individuals these are common findings. ...Read more
Shrinkage: A certain amount of atrophy occurs as we age. When atrophy is excessive or is very focused in a specific region of the brain it can indicate a neurodegenerative disorder. For example, in alzheimer's disease focal atrophy can sometimes be seen in the inner part of the temporal lobes (memory regions). In frontotemporal dementia the atrophy is in frontal and/or temporal lobes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
